Liam Gallagher has criticised his brother Noel for loading his set with too many Oasis songs.

Speaking in this week's NME, the Beady Eye frontman confirmed that the band will only be playing two tracks by his old group for any forthcoming dates and he hit out at Noel for not sticking to material from his 2011 debut 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds'. He said: "We'll keep it as two because there's too many people loitering in the past. We can't be doing 10 of them in the set, we're not Oasis. Noel does quite a bit, but that's his fucking thing: splitting up Oasis and putting half the fucking songs in your fucking set, it's schizophrenic. If you want to play fucking Oasis songs put the band back together and stop being a fucking gobshite. But he hasn't got the balls to go and do High Flying Birds on his own, like we did [playing just Beady Eye songs initially]. That's just the nature of the man."

Beady Eye this week (April 29) unveiled their brand new single, 'Second Bite Of The Apple', which is taken from 'BE'. The album, which was produced by Dave Sitek, is due for release on June 10. Click below to listen to the song.

Beady Eye will play live at Manchester Ritz on June 19 before heading to London for a show at Camden Centre on June 20. The short stint will then come to a close in Glasgow at the ABC on June 22. Tickets were only made available to fans who pre-ordered the new album.
